Harry dropped me off in downtown Apalachicola at 9am to wander and shop while he drove to and from Wakulla Springs to retrieve the items he left in our room there yesterday. We met up mid morning for a cup of Café con Leche at the coffee shop, which was aptly named Café con Leche. Then separated again while he sat in the waterfront park sketching fishing boats and I made sure I had read every historical marker in town.
We arrived at the Orman House Museum in time for the 2 pm tour. This two story Greek revival antebellum house was built in 1838 for a local cotton merchant. It stayed within the family until being turned over to the state and is now a state park. The guide was quite knowledgeable about family, the house and its place in Florida history.
By then it was 4 pm and we hadn’t had lunch. This situation was remedied quite to our satisfaction at the Up the Creek Raw Bar restaurant also aptly named, as its location was indeed Up the Creek .
Tonight we will be going to the Dixie Theater to see Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play. When I went to the box office the ticket seller was just informing the two people in front of me that they had secured the last two seats for tonight’s performance. They went away feeling lucky and I was feeling quite disappointed. The ticket seller then told me that he could sell me the last two seats for tonight’s performance and I in turn felt lucky. As I left the scene was repeating itself with the next two people in line.
